Snippets of the Statistics Screens

Description:

The Statistics collection function is, by design, of limited scope. The main reason given for this being the extra pressure that extensive statistical farming would apply on the MySQL database.

That said there are options within the Global Configuration settings to allow the collection of general Site Statistics in respect of visitors browser, operating system, and domain, the Search Engine Text records the words that visitors have used when they conduct a search within the web site, and (the least recommended) Logging of Hits on Content Items by Date. This last option highlights the issue with regard to the pressure on the MySQL database as the volume of data recorded - particularly on web sites with a highly active membership such as Joomla! itself - would be truly massive!

The Statistics screen covers the Site Statistics of the web site as they relate to:

  • The type of Internet Browser that is used by visitors to the web site.
  • The type of Operating System (OS) that is used by visitors to the web site.
  • The top level domain - for example: .com, .org, .uk, .ru, - that is recorded from the IP Address of a visitor. Note this is the visitors IP Address not necessarily their country of origin in regard to the last two items.
note711_smallNOTE: There are other statistics that Joomla! collects as a matter of course - hit counters for example.

Browsers Tab:

Browser: Provides the name and version of all the different browsers that Users have been using to connect to the web site.

Visual Bar: A visual representation, as a percentage of the total, of the different browsers recorded.
